What does the European Union expect from it’s member states in general, and from Sweden in particular, when it comes to research and innovation to meet the global challenges? Sweden continues to be the  Innovation Leader in Europe. Being an innovation leader is also a responsibility. What does that mean from a European perspective? Which responsibilities and expectations come with being one of the most innovative countries in the world?
